    A must see for any tourist visiting the town. Be sure to have a map, or check guides for the area to get the most out of it. there are also toured guides for many languages

    A beautiful part of the Warsaw with so much history one of the first things l notice was how beautiful each townhouse was painted and the detail in the work which were all surrounding the square. Cetrepiece is the stature of the little mermaid of Warsaw which is the coat of arms of Warsaw city and considered the city's protector. Square offers so much from restaurants, bars. museums, art gallery, souvenir shops, Photo opportunities and in close walking distance to other attractions in Old Town.

    The central indoor market in unimpressive. A small supermarket, some clothes stores, a couple of antique shops, hairdressers, hair salon and assorted services. A couple of good baked goods shops, though.
    The real market is in the surrounding passages and outside - a ton of fresh food stalls some of which have locals queuing up to buy (20 varieties of eggs... 15 varieties of tomatoes... amazing to see) plus other stuff (pet supplies, cleaning supplies, sewing stuff, clothes, flowers etc)

    Go with a guide (many tours of the Jewish ghetto can be had) to fully understand the history of this street where a wall used to stand,not just nice restaurants and buildings refurbished...... Now only several plaques remind us of that tragic past.

    This street connects the Stary Rynek and the Castel Square. Full of souvenir shops, restaurants and there are two churches too.

    When you can manage then take a walk when the Teatr Wielki illuminated. It is wonderful. Unfortunately the square is use as a parking lot, so it is difficult to make pictures. íthe other buildings are very nice as well.

    You can just stroll around and enjoy the quiet surroundings, but you can also visit the museum inside and some old prison cells.

    Freta street is a street in the New Town in Warsaw . It runs from Nowomiejska street (at the junction with Mostowa and Długa streets , about 3 minutes walk from the Barbican) to the intersection of: Zakroczymska , Franciszkańska and Kościelna streets . It is a pedestrian street that can take you back into history , or may let you enjoy strolling calmly , visit churches , small shops and galleries , or have a bite in one of the tempting restaurants/cafes spread along the cobbled stone street . (google up for detailed history ) .
    This street , and the New Town area is not as touristic and crowded as the neighboring Old Town area , but still , it may offer you a lot of attractions , during your peaceful stroll there .
    Highly recommended

    Located along the Vistula river , north of the Old Town the whole New Town area is an important part of Warsaw , and worth a calm stroll along its streets . Not as crowded and touristic as the Old Town , but this neighborhood has its own beauty . It offers a variety of attractions : The New Town Square ; The multimedia fountain park ; Churches; statues and monuments ; historic buildings , small shops , restaurants and cafes . And above all - a peaceful atmosphere and endless photo ops .

    One of the key bridges in Warsaw crossing the Vistula River. The bridge is close to Old Town and can be seen well from the Viewing Terrace at St. Anne's Church.
